Bullet: 35 x 15 cm 1600g
By design the CoreLine with the most compressed sound. Short, precise,and melodious sound character. Influenced by the MON/MHTF bodhrán, the ‘Bullet’ features a modern overall sound. Recommended for players who prefer the qualities of 'small-and-deep' drums.

The standard model. Not too big or too small.
Classic: 40 x 13 cm 1660g
The ‘Classic’ model has a larger diameter and a relatively narrow shell. It’s the CoreLine with an open, more 'traditional' sound. By design, it is a bit louder than the 'Universal' model. The drum’s skin generally comes with the dorsal line (spine of the animal) centered in the playing surface.
XL: 40 x 15 cm 1840g
By design the CoreLine ‘XL’ has the most volume of any drum in the CoreLine Series.

The skins on the ‘XL’ generally feature the dorsal line (spine of the animal) centered in the playing surface.

From Christian Hedwitschak:
"In creating the CoreLine, we drew from the very core of our experience and competency in bodhrán making. From the choice of material to the construction of the frame and the finish of the surfaces, all components and details are perfectly balanced. Our core values are attention to detail and great craftsmanship. We use the EdlauerSelect Premium Goatskin, which is produced and refined exclusively for Hedwitschak drums by a world leading skin manufacturer. The process is carried out in accordance with our specifications, and each skin is individually selected for a specific CoreLine model. The multipoint tuning system works smoothly and allows for precise, quick and easy tuning. Thanks to the shaping of the inner part of the tuning rim, the hand nestles naturally into place, making the drum incredibly comfortable to play. The high quality of the CoreLine is emphasized by elegant black cherry veneer. With the smooth contours and flush-to-the-rim skin mounting, the design of the CoreLine bodhrán demonstrates both function and natural beauty in one bodhrán."
The CoreLine bodhrán is available in six different sizes, including an option that utilizes the ChangeHED System. With all six models available for quick delivery and and at incredible prices, the CoreLine series sets the standard for a "universal" bodhrán.

Christian Hedwitschak on "EdlauerSelect" premium goat drumheads:
"I’ve been using drum skins made by Werner Edlauer exclusively for more than ten years now. The only exceptions are the Lambeg skins used for the RolfWagelsEdition, and Kangaroo Skins by Kentville Drums."
Werner is also the man behind the DRAGONSkin and with no doubt he is one of the best skin makers worldwide. Together, we’ve developed special drum skins for my bodhráns over the last few years. The new EdlauerSelect Premium drum skins are made especially for the CoreLine series. Characteristics of the EdlauerSelect Premium skins are: Harmonious timbre, great flexibility, comfortable surface feel, easy reaction to the skin hand with effortless tonal modulation and stable tuning in almost any climate.
